In this interactive narrative piece by a group of ITP students, Message in a Bottle uses a creative method of engaging the viewer:

The viewer is presented with a simple glass bottle and a plank of wood. Five distinct quotes surround five separate areas of the wooden platform. Upon being picked up and moved across the plank, the bottle triggers different sounds. The five auditory signals serve as another form of guidance, each relating to a certain quote. When the container is placed on one of five specific points, an image or animation is projected into it. Each one of the five locations has its own set of imagery evoking a different character’s life. Every time the bottle is placed on a point, a new aspect of that person’s story is revealed.

One of the team members also posted a video documenting the process of making Message in a Bottle:
